Abstract

Discrete size of atomic lattice constant in continuum type model was presented based on partial differential equations. A model for the description of epitaxial growth based on the levelset method was also developed. It was shown that the discrete extend of a boundary region cannot be neglected for epitaxial growth, where the size of typical features is 10-100 atomic lattice constants.
